CLOTHING COMBINATIONS

Technically you can create colour combinations by mixing and matching colours in your colour palette. You can combine your accent colours with your basic colours or with your dark or light neutral colours.

Bright Winter Colour Combinations Examples

Bright Winter is a sub-season with the highest level of contrast, therefore you can pull of colour combinations that would look bright and strong. Complementary, triadic and tetradic colour combinations would suit you the best. They provide high contrast, because they are on the opposite side or far apart on the colour wheel. They appear brighter and more prominent and create bold and vibrant look.

For triadic and tetratic combinations, its better to use one dominant colour and use the others as accent colours in order to balance your look. You can also pair dark and light colours in order to create contrast.

Other than pairing black and white alone, you can add another bright colour in order to increase the intensity. Avoid using black as a dominant colour, cause you have Spring element in your colouring which needs light and bright colours.

PATTERNS&PRINTS

Bright Winters have many bright and vibrant colours in their colour plate, therefore there are many colouful pattern options available for your taste. Patters should contain only the bright winter colours and have high contrast between them, so they could harmonize with your natural look.

Medium to large scale patterns and prints would pop up the bright colours . Avoid faded colours, blended or minimal patterns; use bold, geometric and abstract designs instead. If you like flower patters, choose the ones with the big scale with bright colours.
